The Japanese House announces ‘Something Has To Change’ EP

“… Even when the lyrics are mired in sadness, there’s a laser-guided focus that keeps things from imploding …” THE GUARDIAN 4*

THE JAPANESE HOUSE has shared her new single, SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE, the title track of her forthcoming new EP, along with an accompanying music video. Directed by photographer and director Nadira Amrani, who has worked with the likes of Flohio, Rina Sawayama and TATE Britain, and styled by Patricia Villirillo, it’s the first full band performance in a THE JAPANESE HOUSE video.

THE JAPANESE HOUSE has also announced that she will be embarking on a short UK tour later this year, stopping off in Glasgow, London and Manchester. Tickets will be available on pre-sale on Wednesday 2 October and on general sale on Friday 4 October at 9am.

SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE is Amber’s first release since her critically acclaimed debut album GOOD AT FALLING earlier this year via Dirty Hit. Just like the album, the new EP was produced by Amber and BJ Burton, one of Bon Iver’s main collaborators who has also worked with the likes of Low and Francis & The Lights. The album followed four previous EPs, all praised for their “experimental and impressive” (DIY) sound, and adored by critics and fans alike.

THE JAPANESE HOUSE has played in arenas across the UK with label mates The 1975, taking in the O2 Arena in London, and found herself nominated on the prestigious BBC Sound of 2017 Longlist. With a raft of sold out headline shows throughout the UK under her belt, and a huge US tour and a summer of festival shows including Reading, Leeds and Latitude behind her, Amber Bain is now primed to head out on the road once more before the end of the year, with new music to play along the way.
